Reception Line to immediately follow
|The Bride - Joanne is known as the computer/e-mail
goddess in her office, which she is leaving for a 3 month honeymoon. She
has a background in theatre and dance, and loves being outdoors. She and
her sister agree she would have been a great flower child in the 60's.
The Groom - Joe is into 3D computer graphics, the Internet, creative writing (for fun, of course!), and many outdoor activities. Joe met Joanne at the drop zone, where they both spent much of their free time jumping out of airplanes. They also "dove" into SCUBA together a few years ago. He's joining Joanne in their three month low-tech USA tour (but of course they'll have a laptop for e-mail!).
The Bride's Side
Jenifer Cosgrove - Joanne's oldest friend, and awesome mom, she is now a new nurse!
|The Groom's Side
Shawn "Chili" McDermott - Avid golfer and Steely Dan fan, Shawn is master "nickname fabricator." He will hold the ring.
Hiroto "H-man" Shibuya - Fellow skydiver, networking guru, and family man, Hiroto knew both Joanne and Joe from the beginning.
Warren "Roach" Wagner - As well as being an important
part of Joe's Hacky-Sack skill development and taste in music, Warren is
an avid mountain biker and networking wiz.
Joanne and Joe decided to take a three month hiatus from their jobs and everyday life and trek across the country in Joe's beloved Jeep "TJ" Wrangler (Joanne couldn't find a VW Bus available). They will be hiking, skydiving, camping, visiting friends and relatives, and just contemplating life during the trip. You'll be able to follow their progress and experiences on the Web:
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you, our friends and family, for sharing this special day with us. Through your support and encouragement throughout our lives, we were able to grow to be who we are today and to ultimately find each other.
--Joe and Joanne
